Monday, why must you come so quickly when I was having such a nice weekend?! Yesterday was a very nice day. I crafted in the morning and then went over to Heather’s house to watch the Bethpage St. Patrick’s Day Parade (I know, I thought it was a bit early too!) and after we headed over to Headquarters for some food and fun. It was nice to see so many people that I haven’t seen in a while. I left around 5:00 to go and meet Sandy for dinner. We went to the Pastrami King in Merrick. WOW! It was absolutely delicious! We talked and caught up, I don’t get to see Sandy as much as I would like to but we are going to work on changing that! I came home and spent the rest of the evening getting caught up. How was your weekend?
Monday, you know what that means?! It’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. For this week Ann has give us a “Thankful for Spring” challenge…
I tried something different on my card today but we’ll get to that in a minute. For my base I used a piece of Real Red Card Stock. The background on the right is a piece of the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper and the left is a piece of Soft Sky. Here is my something different, I took a piece of the Naturals 7/8″ Ribbon and used a Stampin’ Spritzer and some Coastal Cabana ink mixed with alcohol to dye the ribbon. On top of that is another piece of the Fresh Prints DSP and a combination of Mini Glue Dots and Sticky Strip hold it all in place. I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and the 3/16″ Corner Rounder to make my tag. The leaves are from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set and are stamped in Crumb Cake. The flowers; stamped in Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana and Real Red; are from the Petite Petals Stamp Set and are punched out with the Petite Petals Punch. My greeting is from the Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Coastal Cabana. A piece of Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon tied with some Crumb Cake Bakers Twine finishes off the tag. I love the way the Natural 7/8″ Ribbon looks dyed and I really love the way the tag came out! And there you have my card for this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge from Ann. I really hope that you enjoyed the card and I tank you for visiting with me! Have a great Monday! 🙂
